All of our Vallejo classes take place at the Solano County Fairgrounds, but the classroom and range for the beginning classes each have their own entrance separate from the Main entrance to the Fairgrounds. They do not have addresses, so please use the coordinates or the maps to find them. In either case, DO NOT ENTER at the main entrance to the Fairgrounds!
Since the events at the Fairgrounds change frequently and so create different paths through it each time, the only way to ensure you are on time and able to access the parking that is allotted to BAMT is to use the entrances from the street in both cases. If you choose to try to navigate the fairgrounds to go between the classroom and the range and get lost and are therefore late to class, we can not reschedule you and/or give you credit for what you missed. We are required to have you take all sessions in order, so you will not be able to continue with your class and you will have to come back as a drop-in/standby student for another fee in order to complete the portions you have missed.
Even if you are not late as a result, your vehicle may be ticketed and/or towed if you park in any place other than the indicated Director’s parking lot for the classroom or the parking area for the range. The Fairgrounds is often used by Discovery Kingdom as their overflow parking lot, so their security people are always on the alert and actively searching for anyone trying to get out of paying their fee. If they find your vehicle it may be may ticketed and/or towed if you do not park in the space allotted for our classes.
The classroom entrance is at the after hours North RV entrance on Sage street, on the North side of the Fairgrounds, next to HWY 37: https://goo.gl/maps/mo5AZjuqktG2
The range entrance is South of the Main entrance to the Fairgrounds at Gate 6, off of Fairgrounds Dr. The range sessions take place at Gate 6 of the Fairgrounds, which is directly across the street from Discovery

We are not allowed to leave the gates to the street open, so if you are on time and the gate is locked, your instructor is getting ready and will let you in as soon as they are able. Please be patient and wait for them.
If you are late and find the gate locked, unfortunately we are not able to let you into class as we have a very strict schedule to follow. BAMT is only a tenant at the Fairgrounds, so Fairgrounds workers cannot help you to get into the class. You will receive an email by the Wednesday after your class started explaining your options to return.
Please be ready to check in with your government- issued photo ID(you do NOT need a driver’s permit/license) by being present in your seat in the classroom or present on the range with your government- issued photo ID,with the required gear and all of the water and snacks you will need for the day 15 min before the check in time on your confirmation letter.
The instructors have very strict time requirements to meet, so once class has begun you may no longer get into the class. There will be only about an hour break for lunch, so bring everything you will need for both the classroom and riding sessions, including a bag lunch. You may eat in the classroom as long as you leave it cleaner than you found it.
